    Aftermarket radio in the LS question

    Does anyone think this can work in the LS? Alpine INE-F904D Halo9 Navi Car Audio and Navigation System And yep that is a 9-inch screen! I know it's bigger than the space itself. However, the way it mounts is why I wonder if anyone thinks this can work. It's a single din unit, but has various...

    If anyone has extra cash and they are keeping their LS I would highly advise grabbing these rear knuckles while you still can! Less than $200 each plus shipping now vs their old cost of $1,164.17.... So that tells me they are trying to dump these parts and once gone the cost will be nuts if you...
